President and CEO of Jefferson Security Bank (OTCBB: JFWV), K. Stephen Morris, announced the results of operations for the first quarter of 2007 and commented, “First quarter 2007 net income of $622,056 ($2.07 per share) declined $45,844 ($0.16 per share) from net income for the first quarter of 2006 of $667,900 ($2.23 per share). Since March 31, 2006, we opened two new offices and incurred increased operating expenses.
